Big Brother has scrapped the winning £100,000 cash prize after the group staged a failed escape attempt.
The official Big Brother website posted a clip which showed the remaining contestants being told the news. An announcement said: "As a result Big Brother has reduced the prize fund from £100,000 to zero."
"Over the course of the next ten days Big Brother will give housemates a series of opportunities to attempt to win the prize fund back."
Brazilian student Rodrigo was furious to discover the winner would receive no money and stormed into the diary room to complain, while housemates David and Charlie said they were glad there was to be no reward for winning the show.
Big Brother had told the housemates, during the space-themed task, that they were "boring" and needed to do something "entertaining".
All the housemates then broke out of the house into the surrounding camera area.
